In the original publisher's cloth binding and unclipped dust wrapper. Externally, very smart. There is some minor bumping to the head and tail of the spine and slight bumping to the extremities. There is some spotting to the fore edge. To the dust wrapper, there is some slight wear to the extremities, a few small tears and creases, some light marks and fading. Internally, firmly bound. The pages are bright and clean with the odd spot.
